Ray-Pec: Bring back bus transportation for elementary age students!

This petition had 1,329 supporters

This petition is to encourage the Raymore Peculiar School Board to reconsider providing bus transportation to elementary age students within the district.

Recently, Apple Bus sent out generic letters to families stating they would no longer be rendering their services to students who live within one mile of their local elementary schools. This news was upsetting for parents who have little to no means of securing transportation for their young children. There are many parents within Ray Pec district whose work schedules and incomes do not allow them flexibility in ensuring their children's transportation to and from school. Parents will be forced to have their children walk; regardless of age/maturity, weather, or unsafe areas including less populated neighborhoods where there are numerous registered sex offenders. This could all result in increased tardies or absences and therefore less learning and lower grades. We, as a growing community, are asking you to please reconsider your reasonings for eliminating public transportation.
